DIY Sunday - It's all about ruffles.

Hello friends :)

It's Sunday and I am very happy to present another DIY for you:

I have tons of flats and most of them are... boring seems to be the right word. So I thought I should decorate a pair of my flats in a romantic way. With ruffles! (and how doesn't LOVE ruffles?)

So here we go:

You will need a shoe

and some fabric as well as a pair of scissors and your sewing machine, of course!

First, cut a strap off the fabric. It should be a long strap because we want to turn it into ruffles and this will make it more short. (mine is 1 m long)

Using a loose stitch, sew along the strap.

- twice!!!!

That's what it will look like then. :)

You will now have 4 straps of your thread. Take the 2 front straps and... PULL! :)

Like this.

With a little bit patience, you will have ruffles in the end.

Now, just sew them to your shoe.

And your shoe will be one of a kind!

Hope you enjoyed this cute tutorial?!
